YMCA of Metro Chicago Camps - Resident and Family

Y camp has a way of transforming kids. It takes a child away from their normal routine and creates a safe environment for them to overcome challenges like mastering the climbing wall or hitting their first bullseye.

The cabin atmosphere shows children how to live cooperatively by sharing chores and respecting each other's differences. Around the campfire, kids are encouraged to tell stories and share...

Heart O' the Hills Camp

Healthy atmosphere. We learned at conference that the average American youth spends 6 to 8 hours a day in front of a screen, whether the screen is a computer, television, or cell phone. By leaving electronics unplugged, camp allows girls to move more. We eat healthy meals, snack little, walk a lot, run, laugh and play.

Engage all senses We do our best learning not when we sit and listen, but when all the senses are engaged. At camp we don't just listen, we DO. That stimulus rich environment is the best for soaking it all up!
